Dual-Texture Gradient Camouflage--2nd Armored Cavalry, late 1970s


Recommended Posts

I have been gathering more photos and updating an article that Chris Causley wrote for Military Vehicles Magazine a few years ago.

Does anyone have any more photos of this unusual pattern in use? Apparently, it was being tested in Germany by 2nd Armored Cavalry, around 1979 and into the 1980s.

Here's a monument Chaffee that the 2nd Cav had painted.

Reminds me of the British 'Berlin Brigade' camo pattern?

Money can't buy happiness -- but somehow it's more comfortable to cry in a Corvette than in a Yugo.
